Global Days of Service 2019

Dear members of the BC community,


Because of special volunteers like you, our BC community was able to unite to serve the many men, women, and children in need in our backyard and across the globe during this year's Global Days of Service.

Alumni, parents, and friends volunteered at more than 60 service projects and donated both their time and energy in the spirit of giving back. From helping pack food bags for elementary school students in Hawaii, to assisting in the reforestation of islands in Puerto Rico, to working at a migrant children's school in Beijing, Eagles exemplified what it means to be men and women for others.

We could not continue our tradition of service without the help of every single volunteer, and we are especially grateful to you. 

With deep gratitude,

Leah M. DeCosta
Associate Vice President for Alumni Relations

Why I Give Back

"I feel energized when I volunteer. Helping others makes me grateful for my own life—and I always meet great people! Volunteering as part of BC’s Global Days of Service connects me to something bigger than what is happening in my own community. The collective efforts of our alumni around the world are awesome!
